Major titles, golf Grand Slam wins

The 2024 Masters begins Thursday, which means Rory McIlroy gets another chance to chase down his coveted “Rory Slam.”

The 34-year-old four-time major championships winner finished second at the Masters as recently as 2022 and only needs to don a Green Jacket to pull off the prestigious “Grand Slam” in golf.
